Lamar R-1 Board accepts head football coach Scott Bailey's resignation
Bailey had already resigned as athletic director, but will continue in that position until the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
The board also accepted the resignation of middle school football coach Iver Johnson. Johnson will continue to teach in the district.
Bailey, a Lamar High School graduate and former Pittsburg State University football player, guided the Tigers for 14 years, including a national record seven consecutive state championships between 2011-2017.
